This is a beautiful and lyrical non fiction book that describes the author's life in rural New Hampshire after the birth of one of her children The problem is that the book is not about anything It has no plot no characters and no development Mostly it describes nature and animals with occasional tangents for recipes There were a few nice moments but it was way too rambling for me When I look past the content problems I did sense some writing talent so I am curious to see if her fiction is better

This book approaches the best book on mothering I have ever read Precisely because it is poetic and doesn't collapse a large world into a small explainable thing It wanders and waits and watches and takes it time She's not interested in theories or milestones as much as those slippery inexplicable moments of grace and agony I felt wrapped up in her experience and fundamentally understood feminine in a way that I didn't understand before I had children I have wanted to express my experience with motherhood with pregnancy and nursing and child rearing in ways that don't degrade it But somehow the words are never right and other people's even less so It's a hard thing to articulate the endlessly rewarding but ceaselessly discouraging world of being a parent But Erdrich true to form has simply shared a year's worth of mothering in a style that suits the experience lush roundabout thoughtful all in the small snippets of sentences and mind that are leftover luxuries for a mother I felt part of a community reading this book felt a deep pride in my inconseuential everyday doings I am watching my baby sleep and feeling glad that Erdrich respected the unutterable while at the same time conjuring and celebrating it

There were sentences and even whole paragraphs in this book that I loved but I didn't love the whole book 1 I never felt grounded Was I reading about motherhood writing nature I didn't know what kind of book I was reading In the end I decided it was a book about whatever Louise Erdrich wanted to write about that day and I felt she was a little indulgent at my expense2 Too many adjectives and adverbs It slowed me down and made the book less funThat said I wish I would have written this sentence When every inch of the world is known sleep may be the only wilderness we have left I love it
